Ready for 2018

We are pleased to inform you that from September, Bristol Brunel will have a new state-of-the-art, all-weather pitch. This new resource will enhance student experience through PE lessons and extra-curricular activities.

In order to preserve the new pitch for lots of students to use and enjoy for years to come, there are strict guidelines about the type of footwear students can wear. Failure to meet these guidelines will mean students won’t be able to use the new all-weather pitch. The required footwear is as follows:









More examples of appropriate footwear for the new all-weather pitch:













From September, if students arrive to PE lessons or extra-curricular activities (that will be using the new all-weather pitch) without the correct footwear, they will not be allowed to take part. Incorrect footwear can cause damage to the pitch that is extremely expensive to repair.

Suitable footwear can be purchased from the following retailer at a reasonable price:

Please also ensure that your child’s boots are labelled clearly with their name.

If you have any queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact the Academy on 0117 3772700 or email:
